On Walkabout to See What's Out There

Are You Compositionally Challenged?

By: BriarCraft, 10:17 PM GMT on June 22, 2014

For those of you who like digital photography, Calpoppy and I have started a new Flickr Group, called Compositionally Challenged. We plan to have a weekly photo challenge, with members supporting others in their quest to become better photographers. This is an invitation only group, so if you would like to join us, send a WUmail or FlickrMail to Calpoppy or me. Photographers of all skill levels welcome.

Sit down, rest a bit, have a cold drink...

The other day, while I was sitting on the deck, I noticed a bird that I hadn't seen before. I slowly, quietly ducked inside, grabbed my camera and managed to snap a couple of photos before it flew off.

Name that bird???

I spent quite awhile searching around Allaboutbirds.org but I didn't find a single bird that looked quite like this little fellow. It's browner than a sparrow, but about that size or maybe a little bit bigger. For a "plain brown bird" it seemed like quite a handsome bird to me.
ADD: Calpoppy tentatively identified this as a juvenile spotted towhee.

I have a couple of miniature roses that have been giving their all lately. In fact, I don't think I've ever seen a rose bush so full of blooms for such a long time.
